Green walls allow for vegetation to grow vertically, whether for an aesthetic statement, a concern for the environment, or a place to grow a bountiful garden for urban dwellers. The system is composed of a series of modular trays that are mounted to a vertical surface. It is integrated with an irrigation system which keeps the soil moist. The irrigation system also can be hooked up to a storm water harvesting cistern or a gray water filtration system to enable water recycling. There are many advantages of a green wall, similar to that of green roofs, in which they help reduce interior thermal gain because plants would shade the walls exposed to sunlight. The system absorbs and filters storm water reducing the amount of runoff, helping prevent municipal water overflow or contamination. However, green walls particularly allow for is vegetation growth indoors and out, allowing for year-round gardening without taking up floor space, like a bookcase for plants.
